Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

On the beach.

Well, i don't know about "hotter than July", i think old Stevie Wonder should bring out a new album called "wetter than July. Every year it's the same, like a monsoon season. It starts as soon as they mention a hosepipe ban, lol. I decided to cheer myself up by making a sunshine card.

The little girl is by Stamps Happen and the sentiment is Elzybells. I made the flower using a small scallop punch and an X.Cut botanicals punch which also embosses. The backing paper is from a DCWV glitter stack although there's no glitter on this piece.
I put some liquid pearls on the shells for a bit of dimension.
I'm starting work a bit later than usual this morning as i'm going with Speedy for his hospital check up. I have to go with him because as a typical male he doesn't listen and doesn't ask questions, he just wants to get the hell out of there,lol. Also if there's anything he's not supposed to be eating or drinking i want to know!!
 Thanks for visiting. Di.xx

  4. She is beautiful and so is your card, love the sentiment. I love the way you've used a wave theme all round. I hate to tell you it has been hot and sunny here in West Sussex for ages, we would love a really good down pour. Hope it went well at the hospital, I used to have to do this for my husband. xxx
